Description

Maleth / Haven / Port - Heterotopias of Evocation. The Malta Pavilion, commissioned by the Arts Council Malta and curated by Hesperia Iliadou, is inspired by the Odyssey. The exhibit provides an immersive reinterpretation of our timeless need to seek a Haven (Maleth). Cave of Darkness – Port of No Return. Trevor Borg proposes a reimagined multilayered narrative of ancient creatures and long lost civilisations by exploring an entrapment concealed within a Haven. Outland. Vince Briffa focuses on the indecisiveness of man as he longs to retrace his way to the ultimate Haven, caught between an island’s safety and the peril of sea-crossing. Atlantropa X. Klitsa Antoniou hovers between the past and contemporary conditions of surviving displacement and discontinuity amid conflict, within fluid Mediterranean topographies.
